You may have seen the ads for The Dollar Store. How much is this flower arrangement? One Dollar. How much is this tea kettle? One Dollar. How much is this package of light bulbs? ONE DOLLAR. How much is this 56 function, 10 digit scientific calculator? ONE DOLLAR. EVERYTHING IN THE STORE IS ONE DOLLAR.
Is it one of those modern day mysteries, such as, how is it possible to order a 75 cent item from China with free shipping when it cost so much to ship even the smallest package via the post office here in the states?
